      If you didn't want to play for stacks with TPTK then you should have taken a pot-control line on the flop and checked behind. (I also assume the BB wasn't too tight a PF 3-bettor to render your AQo trash even when it does hit the flop so you should fold PF.)

      If BB was generally passive then his line in this hand looks as scary as hell and your fold looks OK. If BB is a bit on the "bluffy side and loose/agg PF" then I will instacall the turn.

      Reads are good.

      we get value from KQ JQ TQ etc with a bet behind on the flop. also, Kx (here, AK) gets a freeroll against us if we check behind.

      if we then call his check/raise, we can reevaluate on the turn very cheaply (it's only a check/minraise). we can then take a pot control line on this drawless board if he checks to us on the turn

      I know that and I do intend to play for stacks, but a double minraise and overpotsize push on the turn just made reconsider and put him with quite a lot of certainty on a KK+

      I like a check behind on the flop to let him do sth stupid. The only hand you don't want to see is a K.
